The Academy Awards red carpet is where the world’s most prestigious stars present themselves in the way they’ll be remembered decades from now. Each year the Oscars red carpet serves as an opportunity for nominees to share their personal style while wearing the most legendary designers.
Some biggest stars in Hollywood arrived on the red carpet to showcase whom there are wearing and their expectations.
Hosted by Regina Hall, Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer, the live telecast recognized the very best of film from the past year. And while plenty of actors and actresses were expected to be in attendance, viewers were treated to plenty of surprises.
Musicians including Beyoncé, Zendaya, Sebastián Yatra, Ariana DeBose, Megan Thee Stallion, Billie Eilish and Reba McEntire took the stage and performed Oscar-nominated songs. In addition, athletes like Shaun White, Venus Williams and Serena Williams served as presenters.
Before the awards were handed out, there’s one thing each star had to do: They have to walk the red carpet, obviously. From designer gowns and tuxedos to custom jewelry and eye-catching shoes, these stars thought of everything before stepping out in style.
